This syndrome of diabetes, hypertension and nephrosis was first described in 1936 by Kimmelstiel and Wilson.3 They stressed the unusual and consistent pathological changes found in the kidneys, namely, degenerative changes in the walls of the capillaries, arterioles and vasa afferentia of the glomerular tufts.
